"The most celebrated British guitar hero to emerge in the 1970s and '80s, Mark Knopfler rose to fame as the leader of Dire Straits, and his songwriting and incisive guitar work played a decisive role in making them an international success story. At a time when punk and new wave were making technique for its own sake seem irrelevant, and metal was taking the guitar solo in noisier and unpredictable directions, Knopfler's clean but dexterous picking proved there was still room for traditionalism and chops in mainstream rock & roll. But even without considering Dire Straits, Knopfler has accumulated an impressive résumé as a producer, sideman, songwriter, and film composer, working alongside some of the best and best-known figures in the music business."

Another great, enjoyable effort from a superb musician. Gotta love him.
This is a very soothing disc by one of my favorite artists! I have always found it interesting that Europeans "get" American music so well. This disc once again shows Knopfler's take on the Nashville music scene--yet also incorporates his love of "highland"music. I will always be a fan!
Knopfler does it again! Great album!
Can't help it - I like everything by this guy. His voice and music are so soothing to listen to.
